Sparta Township Biography

About Sparta Township

Small-town life is alive and well in Sparta, New Jersey. This 39-square-mile township is located in the southernmost part of Sussex County. It borders Morris County’s Jefferson Township as well as the Sussex County towns of Andover, Byram, Hardyston, Lafayette and Ogdensburg. Gently rolling countryside provides a scenic backdrop for new and established neighborhoods, many of which are situated in one of the township’s 11 lake communities.  

Among the lake communities, Lake Mohawk is the largest and best-known. It includes the three-and-a-half-mile-long Lake Mohawk, with over 2,000 homes, White Deer Plaza shopping area, a lakefront boardwalk and the historic Lake Mohawk Country Club. In fact, White Deer Plaza, the country club and boardwalk are listed on the New Jersey and National Historic Registers.

Main Street’s shopping area features Sparta Town Square, a shopping center which opened in 2011 and is anchored by a Stop & Shop grocery store. Smaller businesses in town include restaurants, cafes, a book store, bowling alley, three-screen movie theater, hardware store, garden center, bakery, pharmacy and numerous other shops, services and small businesses. In and around Main Street, many shops are located in charming antique buildings.

Many residents commute to work in larger towns and cities including Newark, about 50 miles away, Manhattan, approximately 60 miles east, or Morristown, a 25-mile ride from Sparta. Recent population numbers report that 19,000-plus people live in the township.
